This image is representative of the battle between what I want to do in my mind, and my body’s painful protest.
It can feel very isolating to be caught in the middle, and unable to give in to either side.
This art is a courtesy of PainExhibit.org, an online educational, visual arts exhibit from artists with chronic pain who use art to express some facet of the pain experience.
The Pain Exhibit’s mission is to educate healthcare providers and the public about chronic pain through art, and to give voice to the many who suffer in silence.
Pain Exhibit recently launched its new Spanish language website at PainExhibit.org/es.
